Forest Essentials Sugared Rose Petal Lip Balm

Heyya gals…Another new week.. Β Wish you all a gr8 week ahead! πŸ™‚

I have been wanting to review this product since long & finally doing the honors today πŸ™‚

Yep.. I meant the Forest Essentials Sugared Rose Petal Lip Balm.

Price & Ingredients:

Shelf life:

Its always good to finish up a lip balm – 6 months from opening for usage.

What the product claims:

(From FE website)

Moisturising Lip Balms made with Kokum butter which contains an abundance of healing ingredients including vitamins, minerals, proteins and a unique fatty acid profile. These fatty acids are indispensable for their emollient properties.

Organic Beeswax deeply nourishes and restores elasticity to the skin Almond oil from sweet almonds is the most nutritious. Rose has cooling, soothing and moisturizing properties. It is naturally hydrating. These lip balms seal in moisture, soothe dry lips, and leave them soft smooth and glossy.Forest Essential Lip Balm (Sugared Rose Petal) is uniquely designed to replenish and soften dry, chapped lips. Enriched with goodness of Natural Butters and Beeswax this balm gently heals and hydrate the lips. Free from synthetic chemicals and petroleum products this Lip Balm contains fresh Rose Petals which are soaked in Honey to protect your lips. Due to its extraordinary moisturizing and hydrating properties it seals in moisture and soothes dry lips leaving them soft and glossy.

The way I see it:
Its the cutest packaging I have ever seen for a lip balm. The lip balm comes housed in a hexagonal wrapper.
The actual lip balm jar is oval-shaped with a bronze lid, golden rim & a transparent bottom. It locks snugly to the bottom, so no mess.
Also ‘Forest Essentials’ is embossed on the golden rim πŸ™‚
The balm also has a tiny mirror inside the lid, which is helpful for applying balm on the go & this is also what makes the packaging all the more cute.

 

Enough of packaging… now on to the product!
The balm is transparent to apply & does not feel waxy. It gives a nice lovely rose fragrance & taste too…I like this lip balm much, much better than the FE Kokum Butter Lip balm reviewed HERE.

It soothes the lips immediately & also helps with dry, chapped lips.

It moisturizes the lips well & stays put for about 2 hrs. Doesn’t survive drinks or meals though.

But, if you have very dry or cracked lips – don’t expect any immediate help from this product.

The lip balm takes its sweet own time to work on very dry or cracked lips. Hence, ideal as a summer lip balm for such people.

I haven’t seen any difference in my upper lip pigmentation with continuous usage of this balm. Probably, since its all natural, its taking time to show results on this front too.

With twice a day usage daily, this balm would last about only a month.

I reach out to this lip balm whenever I want a soothing feel plus I love rose fragrance! And this one is so very natural when it comes to fragrance! πŸ™‚

Overall, its a good lip balm for normal or slightly drier & chapped lips with an amazing, natural rose fragrance. Cost could be the only hitch!

The ‘Yay’ factors:

  • Cutest packaging ever
  • Amazing rose fragrance
  • All natural product
  • Moisturizes lips well
  • Works on dry, chapped lips too
  • Rose fragrance relaxes mood on application
  • Compact in your bag or travel kit
  • Totally non-messy
  • Comes with a tiny mirror to help with on-the-go application
Β 
The ‘Nay’ factors:
  • Price
  • Available only at FE stores in selected cities & very few online shopping sites
  • Requires prolong use to work on lip pigmentation
  • No immediate results on very dry or cracked lips
The last two ‘Nay’ factors aren’t really cons.. since any true natural product would take time to show up results. I still wanted to mention them in the ‘Nay’ list so as to keep people informed about their expectations from this product.
I might definitely pick another lip balm from FE – either the same one or the Narangi one.
Have you tried FE lip balms? What’s your take? Do you think they are hyped?
